Thank you for all the lovely comments ....72!..... welcoming Colin home from hospital. He is so pleased to be home but is exhausted, it's going to take a while to build up strength again. Our eldest and baby Jacob are here this weekend and we are looking forward to seeing him again as last visit was just as he was beginning to be a poorly little man. Since he was fixed he has put on weight and from photos we can see how well he looks but having him here for a few days will be better. Colin has to be careful to avoid infections so apart from H and Jacob we will be having a quiet few weeks without visitors so he can rest and recover.
Another bit of good news............Dean Street Press very kindly offered me a proper book copy of Bewildering Cares by Winifred Peck after all. I'm looking forward to that arriving so I can read and review.
I really enjoyed "Housebound" by her that Persephone reprinted a while ago.
This is what it will look like. All the books they are reprinting under The Furrowed Middlebrow logo
have lovely covers like this. 9 coming out in October including Chelsea Concerto by Frances Faviell which is also another book about life in WWII and I'm being very extravagant and buying it new.
And finally, if I had bought the A4 cutting mat at Aldi at the same time as I got
the storage box last week then I wouldn't have gone back and found they
had A3 cutting mats in stock. An A3 is more useful and I snapped one up
